Hurray! To the event experts who helped create this stunning event! Relive every highlight of this dreamy wedding with the film below.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Crispin and I met in college. The first day of college, one of our mutual friends introduced us and we became good friends. We stayed friends throughout college and afterward as well. In 2015, one day randomly, Crispin asked me out on a date. and I guess the rest is history. 

I think I knew Crispin was the one right away and then came the shock of realizing that my soulmate was in front of me all along. I guess life works out in mysterious ways and I truly believe that we came together at the perfect point in our lives. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Crispin's view: 

I convinced my cousin Ashley to ask Bhagya to come out for her birthday party in NYC. So it was easy to get Bhagya to keep the day free and go out. Bhagya loves flowers and gardens so my initial plan was to propose to her at St. Luke's Garden, Downtown, Manhattan. We were all set to go forward with this plan but as the days got closer the weather forecasted heavy rain. I decided to not change the date because there were a lot of family and friends who made plans to come to NY for this. Last minute, we scrambled to find an indoor place that she would love. After some intensive research, I found the Cathedral of St. John. Because she has always loved historical cathedrals, I knew she would love this setting. 

The day of the "Birthday Party" I convince Bhagya to have dinner with me before going out. on our way to dinner, I told her I found a church that she would love and that we should make a quick stop there. She was awed by the beautiful church and then in front of the alter I got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with me. Lucky me, she said YES! 

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Crispin actually surprised me with a bunch of venue appointments set up for the weekend after he proposed. We went to look at a lot of them but the moment we stepped into Surf Club on the Sound, we knew it was the one. 

Studio KSD - We saw Studio KSD's work and we fell in love with it all! It seemed very high quality and we truly loved the way all the moments were captured. We didn't even bother reaching out to any other photographer.

Makeup and hair for myself and my girls were done by Beauty By Tamanna. She made sure my girls and I looked absolutely stunning.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Wedding Gown - I really went into this with no expectations, I was open to a lot of styles. I just wanted my dress to reflect my personality. I wanted to look simple and beautiful. I absolutely love the work that was on my dress, there was a floral lace and it was all over my bodice and veil. 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Overall, I enjoyed planning our wedding. We gave ourselves a lot of time and made sure to get things done ahead of time. I am really organized so I made sure all the information, next steps and detailed were documented. So we went into planning knowing our budgets and researched ideas of what we wanted. This really helped with every part of the planning process. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guest loved everything about the wedding! Our families were so impressed with how well every little detail came together. The venue was already beautiful but the flowers and decor by Stylish Events made it stunning and it definitely wowed the guests.

The guest also raved about the food and how delicious it was and how there were so many options during the cocktail hour.

And of course, I received so many compliments on my bridesmaid outfits. I had so many brides to reach out to me regarding the outfits. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The reception was the fav part of our night, from the moment we were announced as Mr. & Mrs. Kalarickal to the moment Crispin's special request last song played. DJ USA did a remarkable job of setting the tone for the entire night, through the traditional part, surprise dance by the groom & groomsmen, till the dance floor opened. It definitely felt like a blur but it felt amazing to see our family and friends having an awesome time on the dance floor. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
 Its never too early to start planning! Learn to let things roll off, don't get too focused the tiny details. My wedding looked nothing like what I initially thought it would and I love how it actually turned out. 

Hope you enjoyed this fantastic feature as much as I did! See you tomorrow!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college. I was a sophomore at UConn and he was a senior at CCSU. My roommate introduced us. She gave him my phone number without telling me and then he messaged me. We talked over the phone for a month and then we went on our first date - movie, and dinner. We had pizza. Five months later, he asked me to be his girlfriend in a Stop&Shop parking lot LOL. A few years later he asked to marry me and now we’re married!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was my dad’s birthday and we all went out for dinner. Amit was running late. Amit’s dad said he had a present for my dad. He went to go get it and he came back wheeling a flatbed with a giant gift box on it. My dad opened the box and all sides of the box came down and Amit was inside with a bouquet of red roses (my favorite) and a ring in his other hand. The inside of the box had pictures of us all over. He was on one knee and he said “Janu, I love you so much. I’m so glad to be with you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.” And then he asked me to marry him in Gujarati! He said “Maari jode lagan karis?” Too cute! Of course, I said yes. :)
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
I used Blueprint Occasions as my wedding planners. They did a phenomenal job with everything and I couldn’t be happier! I used Zuri Life for hair and makeup - they were so kind, fast, and efficient! Hair and makeup were done in 45mins-1hr tops! For decor, I used Design House Decor. The theme was “Vermont meets India” because my parents live in Vermont and I liked the country aspect with the trees and vines. I had D&S Event Solutions as my DJ- they did an amazing job! So many people praised them! Henna Cafe by Manisha Trivedi for henna. Visual Comet for lighting. The venue was Crowne Plaza in Warwick, Rhode Island. All very professional and did a great job!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had Ruchita Dagli, a very talented designer based in Boston, MA, make my Garba, Wedding, and Reception outfits. Every single detail on each outfit was perfect! The fit was perfect, the work was so intricate, and she even matched jewelry for me. I had no worries at all! It was more than what I hoped for. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I enjoyed planning everything, I can’t pick one. Of course, it was stressful at times, but all totally worth it!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved the food, music, and decor. They had a lot of fun! You can’t just tell from the vibe. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When Amit surprised me with a dance. He doesn’t dance but he did it for me!
 

Have a lovely day Maharanis! We’ll see you tomorrow with another beautiful wedding story!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Arjun and I formally met on September 19, 2009, during freshman year of undergrad, at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama, while working a service project for our premed group.  We became very good friends over the next couple of months and began dating July 10, 2010.  I always knew he was someone special but I truly felt he was the one the day we officially started dating. I knew there wouldn't be anyone else who would share my love for food, put up with my crazy, and support me in my dreams as he does. He is the most caring, compassionate, loving, romantic, handsome man and I am so blessed to be his wife.  
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
On November 23, 2017, Arjun me when I came home from my ED shift at 5 AM with Christmas lights that read "marry me?" on the lawn below my apartment. I said, "Finally!”  My parents were visiting for Thanksgiving and were sleeping in my room (but they were totally awake) and the plan was that Arjun and I would sleep in the living room. I walked to the sofa and did not find Arjun and instead found the balcony door open so I went outside and there he was all dressed up while I was still in my scrubs. Initially, I didn't see the Christmas lights on the ground because there was a dog peeing on them but then I took a second look and then saw Arjun get down on one knee. It was perfect and beautiful. 
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
We started the wedding planning process in December 2017 with a meeting between both families at my house. We attended a wedding show in Atlanta in mid-January 2018 where we met a handful of vendors. The show gave us a good idea of who we would like to work with since we got to personally met them and see their style of work. I am glad our parents were able to make it.  We knew we wanted to involve our parents in all the decisions as this was such an exciting event for both families. 
 
The wedding planning process can definitely be a stressful one.  However, I can confidently say that my vendors truly cared about me as a bride and did their best to provide a stress-free process for me and my family. Chris Brock, our photographer always made me feel special by saying "whatever you want honey" and he truly lived up to that. His entire team was so fun to work with! 
 
I knew instantly when I met Nida Khan with Red and Gold Events at the wedding show, I wanted her to be in charge of our wedding.  She exhibits confidence and professionalism that has been unmatched. She is truly a boss and gets the job done flawlessly. She is always 20 steps ahead of the planning process and on the day of the wedding, she perfectly executed all of the plans.
 
A friend of ours had told us about Nirali Decor and when I saw her portfolio I knew she would be able to create the white forest I always imagined. Nirali is so sweet and I love all of her designs.  She was so patient with me and allowed me to make many changes, even at the very last minute. She was always on time and very professional. The decor was just breathtaking and I did get my white and gold forest just like I had dreamt.
 
The Renaissance Riverview Plaza Hotel was truly a pleasure to work with.  Lauren Maurin helped coordinate all of the plans for our big day.  She truly took out all of the stress of wedding planning. The staff at the Riverview made sure our guests were always comfortable and knew where they were supposed to go.  I cannot thank the Riverview Plaza Hotel for all their efforts in making our day so perfect.  They truly went above and beyond to ensure every detail was executed from the hotel standpoint.
 
Our decision to have Cafe Bombay cater our wedding was a no brainer. I had tried the food earlier at various weddings and when I met Ricky Walia at the bridal show I knew we had to seal the deal. He is an absolute culinary genius who made my foodie dreams a reality. 
 
Given that I have limited time in residency, I had to take a very short trip to India for wedding shopping.  My time in India was a total of 6 days.  Thankfully my aunt had recently shopped for my older 2 cousins that got married and knew where to shop.  We hit up the same stores and were able to complete all of the wedding shopping in 6 days.  I could not have done it without her support and her knowledge of the entire Mumbai wedding market. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had always envisioned a tradition wedding with traditional red and gold colors. During my shopping trip to India, we headed straight to Manyaver and Mohey to purchase my wedding lengha and his sherwani. My reception gown was from Seasons.  The entire staff at Manyaver and Mohey was so fun to work with! I will never forget the experience!  We would spend hours joking, trying on clothes, taking pictures, and making memories. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was the time I got to spend with my mother and mother-in-law.  Everything from the wedding show, to my India trip, to the get-togethers and planning meetings we would have, was very enjoyable and memorable. I feel like this process brought both of our families so much closer and everyone felt they had a big part in the process.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests really enjoyed the food by Cafe Bombay Catering, the decorations, and the grandeur of our wedding. For this scale of a wedding in Mobile, AL to occur is a little unheard of simply because there aren’t many South Asian wedding vendors. Most couples choose to have a destination wedding far away from Mobile but we were ready to tackle this challenge and all of our local guests were so proud and happy to see what we had put together. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look is a memory that constantly replays in my mind.  It was a very special moment in which it was just Arjun and I.  The entire wedding day was very busy from start to finish, however in that moment I felt time had stood still.  The way he looked at me and the way we both held each other in that moment of silence was beautiful and one that I will always remember and cherish. 
 
I also will cherish having the lights dim throughout the entire ceremony as it made the entire event more romantic in special.  I truly felt all of our guests were mentally present for our wedding. It still gives me goosebumps thinking about how romantic the dim lights felt.
 
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Pre-Wedding Events:
Bridal Shower 
We kicked off wedding week with a bridal shower thrown by my family.  I wanted an intimate setting and felt that our home would be the best venue. We went with a Chinese theme. My mom made flower vases out of wine bottles that held an assortment of pink carnations. We also purchased Chinese fans to go with the theme. We catered from one of my favorite restaurants, PF Changs. Our assortment of desserts included macarons, mochi ice cream, cupcakes, and two cakes.  We played many bridal games and even had the aunties become brides themselves by making them create outfits from toilet paper. It was a fun time for everyone. 
 
Mehndi
My mehndi ceremony was held at our home 2 days prior to the wedding.  The henna artist I had hired from Atlanta had canceled last minute and thankfully amazing aunties from our community gathered together to make my mehndi ceremony a success. My aunt from India had our outfits custom made. I loved the bright colors and floral designs. I wore a fresh flower crown to go with the earthy theme. The mehndi ceremony was a small affair for our families to meet each other and spend time together. 
 
Ganesh Puja/Pithi
We held the Ganesh puja at the Renaissance Riverview Hotel 1 day prior to the wedding. I wore a gold and orange lengha my mother in law had made for me. Arjun wore a custom made piece that my aunt had made to match my outfit. Following the Ganesh puja, was the haldi ceremony/pithi. Arjuna and I both changed into more comfortable colorful outfits. I wore a blue inner tunic and colorful jacket style cover-up. My earrings were also colorful to match my outfit. Arjun wore a white tunic with a yellow dhoti style pant. We played with haldi with our family and had a great time. 
 
Welcome Dinner
Our welcome dinner was held at the Renaissance Riverview Hotel. We went with an outdoor patio location. Since Mobile is the original home of Mardi Gras it was only fitting to have a Mardi Gras theme dinner. We had a Mardi Gras backdrop and props for pictures. All of our guests received Mardi Gras masks and Mardi Gras beads. Our menu was a mixture of foods but heavy on the southern theme. Café Bombay catered chicken 65 and waffles and a vegetarian option of Gobi 65 and waffles along with a masala shrimp and grits live station where guests could choose their toppings. The Renaissance Riverview Hotel provided fresh hot beignets and mini king cakes. We had fresh Moon pies from the Chattanooga Moon pie Company. Other menu items included fajita live station, Mexican street corn station, falafel, and gyros station. The weather was perfect and we let the good times roll!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Relax! The day of the wedding can be so chaotic and hectic but remember what all this is truly for and don't stress about anything. Your planner and vendors will make sure everything runs smoothly. There will always be issues that come up last minute but trust that they are handling it and instead focus on cherishing every single moment and being present in the moment. 
 

Hope this wedding has brought some inspiration for all the Maharanis planning their special day!
